A very easy care spreading medium sized shrub, growing to around 2 to 3 metres high and wide. Very similar to ‘Robyn Gordon’ but has cream and pink flowers rather than pure red. A great feature shrub, screen plant or for an informal hedge. It is frost hardy and quite drought tolerant once it is established, and like all grevilleas, attracts nectar loving birds. The foliage is slightly prickly, making this a very good nesting plant for smaller birds.
Feed in spring and summer with a low phosphorus native fertilizer, watering in well afterwards to avoid leaf burn.
Note – some grevilleas can cause skin irritation to some people. If you are affected wear protective clothing when handling grevilleas

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
